Talking to CBC Radio about Rogues and Rebels

I had a delightful on-air chat this morning with Chris dela Torre, host of CBC Radio One’s Daybreak Alberta, a program heard across the province on Saturdays and Sundays.

We were talking about my new book, Rogues and Rebels: Unforgettable Characters from Canada’s West, with specific focus on two of the characters in the book: Ralph Klein and Tommy Douglas.

Ralph Klein, 1966
Tommy Douglas, 1948

Why would I want to write about these two well-known individuals? They’ve already been extensively covered in books, magazine and newspaper articles. What could I possibly have to add? That’s what this interview was mainly about.
